About This File

[color="#FF0000"][b]Cities XL 2012 compatible[/b][/color]

This mod contains 9 types of forests with three types of trees declined each of three different soils.
So these are plazas, you'll find them in Environment / Decorations.

These places have been configured to accept slopes of 60 °.
To be sure to keep the slopes, draw a route up the slope and a second lower and after, put your area of forest. The trees follow the slope and the ground will respect the roadside.

So there are three categories of trees according (approximately) the geographic areas:
- Deciduous trees in temperate regions
- Conifers for cooler regions
- Exotic varieties for the tropics
Low shrubs are planted to enhance the appearence of undergrowth.
Notice that the tree density is high enough to give precisely the impression of forest which is not the case with the textures of the game (or Malaya's).

Each category is broken down on three grounds:
- The texture of "waste" of brown color that looks like in this case a forest soil with fallen leaves
- The green grass texture of the Wooded Park Area of the game, allowing transition between textures
- And a splendid set of 3 textures designed expressly by Peluche, approaching more the rich colors of the undergrowth.

These plazas seem to be less memory-intensive than individual trees.






This mod works only with Cities XL 2011.

    • Thank-you for making it clear how to connect the water pump.   It was a detail that I overlooked in my description because I was running the tests using the utility radius mod.   I think from now on in my descriptions I will offer to assist anyone that may have issues with making the lot work.  That may help preventing jumping to conclusions.  I'm including a new preview using @CorinaMarie 's graphic that shows how to connect the pump.
    • Ah! Howdy! Those are cars! Especially the red one shortens commuter times!
    • I followed the steps that came up but in the end there was an error message, "The system cannot find the file specified"
    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light.   As well, the darker tone of the water would be natural to the depth and confined space where there would be less scattering of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
